Los Angeles Clippers head coach Doc Rivers recently spoke about the likelihood of having mulit-time NBA All-Star Chris Bosh into their team.

The 32-year-old Miami Heat big man had suffered from blood clots in his lung during the 2014-2015 season, which had ultimately hindered him from further progressing in his career. The same medical condition crept up to him once again in February, and this time it manifested on his right leg when he got injured. Bosh's season was once again cut short after the All-Star break, where he only played a total of 53 games.

The Heat front office was actually optimistic about Bosh's future this season, as they were bracing to have him back on the court. However, things did not pan out well for the 16-year NBA veteran after he was unable to be given clearance to play due to a failed pre-season physical exam.

In a documentary he released through Uninterrupted (as reported by ESPN.com), Bosh says he completely disagrees with the medical findings, as well as the decision to keep him in the shelves once again. "I know inside me I have a lot of talent and a lot of ability. I have it. I know I have it. It wasn't a matter of if I play again; it was when. So we took the bull by the horns," Bosh said.

Bosh's second shortened season last year was still a notable one for him, as he was still able to contribute significant numbers as the team's perennial big man. He averaged 19.1 points along with 7.4 rebounds and 2.4 assists. He clearly remains to be an asset for any team, which made him draw the attention of the Los Angeles Clippers.

Speaking to the cameras of TMZ.com, Clippers starting center DeAndre Jordan says he is even willing to forego his slot at the starting line-up and play off the bench, to accommodate Bosh's entry into the team. It was, however, did not seem too ideal for Rivers.

"I love him, but I don't know," Rivers said when asked about the said idea. "I want him to be healthy, that's more important."
